Since 1998, Old Crow Medicine Show has been touring the world and performing live in front of countless fans.

Now, the group's latest tour will bring them to Beaver Dam on Saturday.

"Bluegrass has deep roots here in Ohio County," Beaver Dam Mayor Paul Sandefur said in a press release. "In Beaver Dam, we certainly want to honor our heritage and promote the legacy that Bill Monroe began years ago."

Sandefur added that he expects a crowd of 1,500 to 2,000 for Saturday's show.

Since beginning in 1998, Old Crow Medicine Show has received many accolades for their work.

They have been inducted as members of the Grand Ole Opry and won two Grammy awards in 2013 and 2014. In 2016, Old Crow Medicine Show performed at ROMP in Owensboro.

Old Crow Medicine Show has performed alongside many renowned bluegrass and country artists, such as Brandi Carlile, John Prine and Willie Nelson, among others.

Beaver Dam Tourism Director JoBeth Embry said that both Old Crow Medicine Show and Tuttle have been influenced by bluegrass in their respective careers.

"It's going to be incredible," Embry said in the release. "We hope folks will take the time to enjoy the whole 'Bluegrass Experience' in Ohio County."

Tuttle saw success with her 2017 album "Rise," which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Bluegrass chart.

In 2017, Tuttle was recognized by the International Bluegrass Music Association as "Guitar Player of the Year."

Tuttle was the first woman to receive this title in the history of the IBMA, according to the release.

"I am super excited for this show," said Heath Eric, of The Eric Group, the show's promoter. "Molly is phenomenal and is one of the best bluegrass pickers out there."

Eric also said that the goal of this concert is to honor Ohio County's rich bluegrass heritage, with Ohio County being the home of Bill Monroe.

"We wanted to pay homage to this with a modern show," Eric said.

General admission tickets are $29.50, with VIP, Lower Arena and Pit ticket prices at $39.50 and Golden Circle prices at $59.50. Ticket prices will increase $10 if purchased on the day of the show. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the show will begin at 7 p.m.
